November 2015

Abu Dhabi Ports, the master developer, operator and manager of ports and industrial zones in the Emirate, presented business opportunities in Abu Dhabi’s vibrant economy, especially in Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad), at an exclusive business event in Kuwait.

Organised by Abu Dhabi Ports in association with Unicapita Holdings, the invitation-only event for Kuwaiti businessmen was held at Jumeirah Hotel at Kuwait City.

The half-day event titled “Opportunities in Abu Dhabi-A Global Trade, Manufacturing and Logistics Hub” cast light on Kizad, the industrial and logistics hub of the state-of-the-art Khalifa Port. The port is among the most advanced in the world and the first semi-automated port in the region. Kizad is fully integrated with Khalifa Port, which offers outstanding supply chain connections and efficiencies through the services of over 20 major carriers with direct connections to over 50 destinations across the globe. 

“Kizad plays a major role in Abu Dhabi’s emerging position as a global business hub, enabling the emirate’s economic vision. Integration with Khalifa Port and many other unique facilities for businesses have already made Kizad an attractive foreign direct investment destination,” said Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports.

“We wanted to share the Emirati experience of managing world-class ports and industrial zones with Kuwaiti businessmen,” he added. 

Many Kuwaiti investors have already set up business at Kizad.
